Kollywood’s Young General (a.k.a Ilayathalapathy in Tamil) Vijay must be crying himself silly into his beer over the sorry fate of his recent movie Azhagiya Tamil Magan.
This much anticipated movie of our self-styled Young General turned out to be a disgraceful affront to his fans and has deservedly met with a less than enthusiastic response at the box office.
As one critic wrote in a stinging review:
Asingamana Tamil Magan would be a more apt name for this repellent farce of a movie featuring Vijay in a double role opposite the young Delhi girl Shriya Saran.
Even in the long gone days of silent movies, film-makers would not dare to unleash an abomination like Azhagiya Tamil Magan on viewers.
Horribly amateurish, completely bereft of a story or any semblance of logic, Azhagiya Tamil Magan brings disgrace to the entire Tamil movie industry.
Yes, Tamil movie fans are not the smartest bulbs on the planet but even they refused to put up with rubbish like Azhagiya Tamil Magan.
Let’s see what Ajith brings us next week with the Billa remake.
